After scoring a career-high 30 points against the Bakersfield Jam on Sunday night, Ryan Kelly was recalled by the Los Angeles Lakers. In three games for the Los Angeles D-Fenders, Kelly averaged 25.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.3 steals. Since he only appeared in seven minutes total for the Lakers this season, it has been a great opportunity for the rookie out of Duke University to play major minutes and display his offensive repertoire.

Here is the press release via the Los Angeles D-Fenders:
